The World According to Bella and A Healthy Salad

Mail Service Resumed
Lucky me, my mail has been forwarded to the lake. 
Every afternoon Mr. C and I walk down the road for the mail. I was patient while Mr. C cleaned out the box hoping there might be something for me. I couldn't believe my good fortune when Mr. C announced there was a letter addressed TO BELLA and signed 
FROM YOUR SECRET ADMIRER. I wasted no time getting home running ahead of Mr. C down the road. 
Inside the envelope was a treat just for me. I sniffed and drooled before devouring it  in record time. So far two treat letters have come my way and summer hasn't even begun.  
Will keep you posted on any new developments. 
The rain finally stopped and my hole out front is starting to dry out.  
Love, Bella
